The year is 2347. Bio-engineered dragons and devils fly the skies. Most of the earth is ruled by the Universal Imperium, a global empire of empires governed by a neo-nobility. Humanoid creatures are bred to serve as super-soldiers and slaves. Atop the socio-political pyramid is an ultra-elite known as the Human Immortals. And the most powerful man on earth is a genetic engineering genius turned tyrant.
All of this came about because of the miracle drug Eternavix. Made from rare DNA found mostly in Asian women with blue eyes, Eternavix halts aging, rejuvenates the body, and allows the privileged to stay young maybe forever – as long as they have a prescription authorized by the Imperium.
Eighteen-year-old Mara is of Eurasian parentage. She has vivid blue eyes and warm tan skin. She is gorgeous, gutsy, and an orphan all alone. Born in Australia, raised in the Dirty Lands of the American east, Mara comes to the Chicago Republic, a city-state independent of the Universal Imperium, to start a new life. But she arrives on the very day the city comes under attack by an imperial dragon – a victarian, the meanest kind of dragon – sent by the Imperium to harass the city and feed upon its citizens.
When she saves the life of a woman named Bev, who befriends her, Mara is unwittingly drawn into a luxrious world, a world of intrigue and deceit, funded by the lucrative trade in Eternavix illegally obtained. She is in far greater danger than she realizes, for her blue eyes and Asian complexion are a giveaway that she most likely has the perfect genes not only for producing the E drug, but for making monsters
Yet when love turns a hideous enemy into a powerful ally, there just might be a way to bring the Imperium to its knees.
Written under a pen name by a writer whose work in a different category has sold in the millions of copies worldwide, Eternavix is a futuristic action thriller with elements of fantasy, horror, and suspense, offering a fresh twist on the classics Paradise Lost and Frankenstein.
